Apparently, sometime in the last two years, it has been said that Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden died, NBC News reported three U.S. officials saying. However, no details, including any comments from the President have been made.
There’s no confirmation on where or when Hamza died, but it is said, he was Osama bin Laden’s prospective heir. According to letters found, following his father’s death, Hamza was intended to go to Abbottabad for leadership grooming.
In 2017, former FBI agent Ali Soufan said, “Hamza is being prepared for a leadership role in the organization his father founded” and is “likely to be perceived favorably by the jihadi rank-and-file. With the Islamic State’s ‘caliphate’ apparently on the verge of collapse, Hamza is now the figure best placed to reunify the global jihadi movement.”
The U.S offered up a $100,000,000 reward to find Hamza’s location while he was living. However, there has been no word as to the U.S. government’s involvement in his death.
